The original.

Durable leader. Sharp hooks. Strong swivels. Long life lumo beads.

We combine the very best components to deliver a quality rig that will allow you to catch a huge range of species. This includes our Japanese made hooks for solid hook ups and soft Japanese lumo beads for extra attraction when fishing in deep water or at night.

Our Snatchers® are a paternoster style rig and they're best fished with a small triangle of bait. You can fish them from anywhere - off the beach, rocks or wharf, or from the boat.

What you need to know

The best by test

We rig all our Snatchers® with our own components. We use our Tough Trace, as it offers a high level of abrasion resistance. We use our own hooks including Japanese made KL and C Point® hooks, and our own barrel swivels. Why? Because we only use the best.

Hand rigged in New Zealand

We've always liked to do things our own way. Which is why we've always rigged our Snatchers® in New Zealand. This ensures you get the best possible rig, that snapper and other species won't be able to resist.

How to fish with Snatcher® rigs

Despite being called a "Snapper Snatcher®", they can actually catch pretty much any species including kingfish, blue cod, gurnard, gummy sharks, john dory, and Australian salmon. Black Magic Brand Ambassador, Dan Govier, has been fishing with our Snatchers® for years and he's shared his tips and advice on how to have a successful day on the water with our pre-tied rigs.
